As we celebrate 35 years in business, we are taking a look back on how things all got started at Comer Construction more than three decades ago. Today, we’re looking back on some of our first dump trucks.
Pictured below are photographs of two of some of our first R-Model Mack Dump Trucks taken in Street, Md. in the late 80s. The first photograph is of a 1987 R-Model Mack Dump Truck — the first new dump truck purchased by J. Marvin Comer, the founder of Comer Construction.
In the second photograph, two-year-old Christopher Rice, son of Comer Construction’s own Fred Rice, stands tall by the front tire of a 1989 R-Model Mack Truck. Fred is a Fleet Manager with Comer and is celebrating 34 years with Comer Construction this year.
In the late 80s, Comer Construction operated 6 dump trucks in its fleet. That number rose to 25 in the late 2000’s and now, nearly 30 years later, we currently operate 19 dump trucks.
